Okay... Now I'm Ready for Baltimore!!!

Here they are! It has been a challenge getting my T-shirts made. I'm telling you sewing machines do not like me. I had two shirts get stuck in machine and had to be cut out.. that was a challenge in itself. 

We have to wake up at 4, so that's going to come very early for me, little miss night owl.

Happy Mother's Day!

Oh my word! Talk about a Mother's Day full of presents! I thought it was my birthday for a minute! Above is a photograph of all the gifts I received this year. My husband, Johnathan spoiled me this year with everything I need to start machinery embroidery projects, my daughter's gifts were also amazing she handmade all of her gifts for me! She made me a beautiful vase in Pottery class, a tissue paper rose for the vase, and while we were away on our camping trip she sneaked into my crafts and created me a handmade Mother's Day card! :D My son said he wanted to get me a 100 roses and a box of candy that he had heard about on the radio, but with his shifts he ended up getting me the adorable T-shirt that says It's All About Me, Deal With It! ...lol! It might have to go into a quilt or something since its a bit small for me! ;)
I hope everyone is having a wonderful Mother's Day! It feels like Christmas and I think I am ready to go play with my new toys!!

Oh Brother.. I need more practice!

Oh Brother, as in my Brother SE400 Embroidery Machine. This is some of my scrap work on an old white apron..

And then I wanted to be a part of the Anysoldier.com Quilting Bee's. The Quilting Bee's make squares and they are sewn together making a quilt to donate to families of our military. This square is what I am working on for the latest Memorial Quilt.

Thank You, Regina!

Thank you so much Regina at Cards by Regina for choosing me to receive this Liebster Award.  Regina is one of the most talented and enthusiastic designers I have ever met. I am so very pleased to have met her and to have her on my team at The Outlawz Greetings Challenges.

"The origins of the Liebster Blog award are somewhat unclear but the general consensus is that it originated in Germany, Liebster meaning favorite or dearest, to showcase bloggers with fewer than 200 followers. Upon accepting the award the recipient must then pass it on to five more blogs of note."

Without further adieu, here's what you do as a presenter of this award!

1. Thank your Liebster Blog Award presenter on your blog.
2. Link back to the blogger who presented the award to you.
3. Copy and paste the blog award on your blog.
4. Present the Liebster Blog Award to 5 blogs of 200 followers or less who you feel deserve.
5. Let them know they have been chosen by leaving a comment at their blog.
So, now it's my turn to pay it forward, my picks for fellow bloggers with less than 200 followers, in no particular order, are as follows:
1. Brenda Turner Stamp It Up
5. Kuki Kuki's Welt
Now, if each of the 5 people I have chosen would please choose 5 of their own!
